Submission deadline extended by one week to Nov 9th.
A conference over two days at Lancaster University Management School
- 18-19 March 2013
Management learning as a field of academic inquiry has a long and distinguished history. The journal Management Learning is now in its fifth decade of publication and continues to publish original and thought-provoking scholarly articles relating to learning, management, and organizing. 'Management Learning: Learning to publish, publishing to learn' will reflect on and further build this tradition by shaping both future submissions to the journal and the field itself.
The conference will be held at Lancaster University Management School, which was instrumental in the development of management learning as a discipline and in the inception of the journal.
We encourage submissions that reflect the Management Learning philosophy of processual, provisional and contested views of knowledge and learning. The intention is to:
- Shape the ongoing development of the field;
- Contribute to management learning scholarship through research and publication
Delegates will have the opportunity to dialogue with past and current members of the journal’s editorial team as well as established and aspirant Management Learning authors. Delegates will be able to build on their contributions through the presentation of papers, exchange of ideas and receiving constructive feedback.
The conference is being supported financially by Lancaster University Management School, Management Learning, the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies and SAGE. The delegate fee is therefore set at a subsidised rate of £100 (inclusive of dinner on the 18th March and bed and breakfast accommodation at Lancaster House Hotel for one night). For full-time PhD students there will be no charge. However, to participate in the conference, and receive the subsidised rate, all participants whether PhD students or academic staff will need to have a paper accepted.
Evening of Monday 18th March – Distinguished Panel
There will be a panel discussion with three distinguished Management Learning scholars and past editors of the journal: Professors Elena Antonacopoulou (U. of Liverpool), Mark Easterby-Smith (Lancaster University) and Russ Vince (U. of Bath).
